The 2021 Vezina Trophy Betting Odds Favor Andrei Vasilevskiy

  • The Vezina Trophy is awarded to the best goalkeeper in the NHL each year.
  • Andrei Vasilevskiy (-150) leads the odds boards, and statistically, deserves to do so.
  • His closest competition comes from Marc-Andre Fleury (+225).

LAS VEGAS - The Vezina Trophy is awarded each year to the best goalkeeper in the NHL.

This year, the odds to win the trophy are heavily slanted towards Andrei Vasilevskiy, whose excellent season between the sticks for the Tampa Bay Lightning has not gone unnoticed.

However, there are other serious contenders for this award as well, despite how far ahead Vasilevskiy is at the moment.

2021 Vezina Trophy Betting Odds

While Vasilevskiy is making an excellent case for his second run with the Vezina Trophy, players like Marc-Andre Fleury, Connor Hellebuyck, and Philipp Grubauer are well within contention on the online sportsbooks.

Odds To Win The 2021 Vezina Trophy

  • Andrei Vasilevskiy (TB) -150
  • Marc-Andre Fleury (VGS) +225
  • Philipp Grubauer (COL) +400
  • Connor Hellebuyck (WPG) +500
  • Semyon Varlamov (NYI) +1600
  • Kaapo Kähkönen (MIN) +5000
  • Tuukka Rask (BOS) +5000
  • Kevin Lankinen (CHI) +5000
  • Carey Price (MTL) +8000

The honest truth of this race, however, is that it’s hard to ignore the numbers Vasilevskiy is putting up.

He has a save percentage of 93.0%, the highest in his career, he has the most wins as a goalie across the season, and the second most saves of the season.

His team is one of the best teams in the league, and he’s been putting on a show between the sticks for quite a while now. By save percentage, he’s having a better season in 2021 than when he won his first Vezina Trophy in 2019.

Marc-Andre Fleury is Vasilevskiy’s closest competition on the odds boards, and likely on the ice as well. Fleury is, somehow, putting up the second highest save percentage in his illustrious career, at 92.6%.

For a man who's been in the league since 2003, that’s quite a statement.

He’s racked up five shutouts this season, and he allows about 81% of the goals that an average NHL goalie would, making him far better than average.

The problem for Fleury is that Vasilevskiy exists - he allows about 77% of the goals that an average NHL goalkeeper would allow, making him better than average, but also better than Fleury.

This race isn’t over, but Vasilevskiy has a very commanding lead, statistically, and is on arguably the best team in the league, the reigning champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

NHL bettors could look to get odds on him before they get out of hand, or take an underdog in hopes of a longshot payoff.
